What should I do to get my BA? Please give me your opinion.?
Ok, so this is my problem. I have associates in computer science from my community college. I transferred to UCONN. They accepted all my credits, but only like 9 credit hours will count towards my degree. So I basically had to start all over. I am in the middle of my 2nd semester at UCONN but I think I want to transfer out. Why? I work full time in my desired field already - 3 years. When I am done with my degree it will be 6 Years. This is what I am thinking. I could either 1 transfer to a crappy online school (whoever takes the most of my credits like UoP) get a BA and then return to UCONN for my masters. I was also thinking that I could try and get into an online program like Florida states so my BA is at least respected. My questions are one for schools like Florida State. How do I find out what credits are going to transfer before going through the whole application process? How can I check out all the respectable online colleges at once (my credit status)? Two - should I worry about where I am getting my BA from (especially if I get my masters somewhere better), or should I just get my BA as fast I can and not waste any time. By the time I get my BA I will have at least more than 5 years of experience and be titled for my desired position. I want to do an online school because I had to move to a weekend shift (job) to continue my education, so now my education is affecting my career negatively. I am getting very annoyed at UCONN because I could be learning more if I was not going to school. I have to take all the basic classes over again, all the classes that don’t matter to me, and it is burning me out. I could have been using this time to focus on the specifics that would actually further my ability to succeed. I don’t know. What would you do? What should I do? Should I stick it out at UCONN? I would so much rather do online classes…
